Explore National Immunization Awareness Month with the NNLM Reading Club

Posted by on August 6th, 2019 Posted in: All of Us


August is National Immunization Awareness Month, a National Health Observance which provides a key opportunity to highlight the importance of getting recommended vaccines at all ages.

The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention reminds us that every year children and adults become seriously ill and are hospitalized because of diseases that vaccines can help prevent, like whooping cough, cancers caused by HPV and pneumonia. This year’s measles outbreaks are a key reminder of how quickly diseases can spread when people aren’t vaccinated.

The NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network is pleased to announce its three book selections in support of National Immunization Awareness Month:

  • On Immunity by Eula Bliss
  • Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel’s Autism by Peter Hotez
  • The Vaccine Race by Meredith Wadman

To learn more about each of these titles and to download book discussion guides, promotional materials and corresponding vaccine and immunization information, or to apply for a free NNLM Reading Club Book kit, visit the Book Selections and Health Resources: Vaccine Health.
